About Me

Moved to Amsterdam 6 months ago for the sake of adventure. Originally from Hong Kong.

Graduated with an undergraduate degree in psychology and English, now working as a computer programmer. From reading Shakespeare to writing code - I think it characterizes me pretty succinctly: Jack of all trades, master of none (周身刀冇張利 in Canto slang, I think it is so much cheekier!).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing => Randomly landed me a job abroad.

True story!

Usually people say stuff alongs the line of couchsurfing is about 'sharing', 'experiencing different cultures', 'meeting awesome people'... while for me all those were true, but I also end up landing a job in the Netherlands indirectly because of CS. Stories to tell!


Philosophical bullshitting sessions with too much wine and whiskey. Artsy fartsy films. Experimenting in the kitchen. Acting like a cheeky kid.

Leftist politics. Read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Get high on weed in the deserts in the heart of the great Australian desert. Lying under the cloudless sky with millions of stars above you, not a single trace of human civilization in sight. That is what freedom smells like.
